The NYTpicker points out an important distinction presented in The New York Times‘ corrections column:
An article on Nov. 4 about the San Francisco Giants’ victory parade referred incorrectly to the type of underwear shown to the crowd by first baseman Aubrey Huff. His “rally thong,” which he said he wore for luck during the Giants’ run to the World Series title, was designed for men, not for women.
Now you are informed. You are welcome.
And doesn’t this make that whole issue with The Nation‘s ad numbers seem silly?
